Assistance for Feeding Programs
The generous giving of the members of the ELCA throughout the country has given the SWCA Office of the Bishop the opportunity to offer grants to help us share our love with our neighbors. We applied for and received two grants: $10,000 from ELCA COVID-19 Appeal, and $35,0000 from Lutheran Disaster Response COVID-19, for a total of $45,000. The Evangelical Outreach and Mission Team (EOMT) is working with the Synod Council and executive staff to award these funds for the sake of the world.
Congregations with active ministries that show love for their neighbors are invited to apply. Funds must be used to increase a congregation’s capacity to help their neighbors – for example, through the purchase of additional food, equipment, or gasoline. Funds could also be used for the purchase or repair of equipment, and/or a small stipend to pay for additional help. Awards will range from $1,000 to $5,000.
